Your Call: Did the Governor Step up to the Plate after the Hurricane?

September 6, 2016 - 5:30pm

Gov. Rick Scott spent most of Labor Day weekend touring damaged areas in Hurricane Hermine's path and working with the State Emergency Operations Center to muster as much help as quickly as possible to restore power to thousands of homes in Leon and Wakulla counties.

At noon Tuesday some 18,293 homes and businesses in four counties remained without power: Leon – 11 percent or 16,161 homes; Wakulla, 18 percent or 1,540 homes; Taylor – 2 percent or 133 homes; and Gadsden – 2 percent or 363 homes. Twenty-two state facilities were reported to still be in the dark.

And Tuesday the governor activated Florida’s Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program through the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). Scott said he wants to support local small businesses impacted by the storm -- a storm emergency personnel categorize as causing more flooding and damage than North Florida has seen from a hurricane in a generation.

So, our question to you is simple:

How would you rate Gov. Rick Scott's response to Hurricane Hermine on a scale of 1 to 10?
